Fame quotes
Fame
Sometimes I wish I weren't famous.

- Wynette, Tammy
Now there is fame! Of all -- hunger, misery, the incomprehension by the public -- fame is by far the worst. It is the castigation of God by the artist. It is sad. It is true.

- Picasso, Pablo
Glory follows virtue as if it were its shadow.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
There is something greater than wealth, grander even than fame -- manhood, character, stand for success... nothing else really does.

- Marden, Orison Swett
If fame is to come only after death, I am in no hurry for it.

- Martial, Marcus Valerius
Few people rise to our esteem upon closer scrutiny.

- Proverb, French
RESPONSIBILITY, n. A detachable burden easily shifted to the shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune, Luck or one's neighbor. In the days of astrology it was customary to unload it upon a star. Alas, things ain't what we should see If Eve had let that apple be; And many a feller which had ought To set with monarchses of thought, Or play some rosy little game With battle-chaps on fields of fame, Is downed by his unlucky star And hollers: "Peanuts! -- here you are!" "The Sturdy Beggar"

- Ambrose Bierce
A sign of celebrity is often that their name is worth more than their services.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.
People should realize we're jerks just like them.

- Bono, Edward De
Celebrity-worship and hero-worship should not be confused. Yet we confuse them every day, and by doing so we come dangerously close to depriving ourselves of all real models. We lose sight of the men and women who do not simply seem great because they are famous but are famous because they are great. We come closer and closer to degrading all fame into notoriety.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.
Glory is like a circle in the water, Which never ceaseth to enlarge itself, Till by broad spreading it disperses to naught.

- William Shakespeare
Celebrity is the advantage of being known to people who we don't know, and who don't know us.

- Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
MONUMENT, n. A structure intended to commemorate something which either needs no commemoration or cannot be commemorated. The bones of Agammemnon are a show, And ruined is his royal monument, but Agammemnon's fame suffers no diminution in consequence. The monument custom has its _reductiones ad absurdum_ in monuments "to the unknown dead" -- that is to say, monuments to perpetuate the memory of those who have left no memory.

- Ambrose Bierce
We always hear about the haves and the have-nots. Why don't we hear about the doers and the do-nots.

- Sewell, Thomas
Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
How great are the dangers I face to win a good name in Athens.

- Alexander The Great
Being famous was extremely disappointing for me. When I became famous it was a complete drag and it is still a complete drag.

- Morrison, Van
Popularity is neither fame nor greatness.

- William Hazlitt
There are names written in her immortal scroll at which Fame blushes!

- Hazlitt, William
Throughout my life, I have seen narrow-shouldered men, without a single exception, committing innumerable stupid acts, brutalizing their fellows and perverting souls by all means. They call the motive for their actions fame.

- Lautreamont, Isidore Ducasse, Comte De
